The collaboration between Arun Vijay and debutant director Siva Gnanam was announced in August 2012 and Karthika Nair was signed for the film in September 2012. The initial shoot took place in Pazhani later that month.
The first schedule of the film was held in Theni in October 2012. The climax shoot in March 2013 was scheduled to take place in a set worth 60 lakhs erected in Saidapet, Chennai but was postponed to avoid disruption to school exams. Thus the team relocated and began filming again in Pondicherry. In January 2014, film's title was changed from Deal to Vaa Deal.
Music is composed by Thaman uniting with Arun Vijay for second time after Thadaiyara Thakka.
Deal is the Greek version of Deal or No Deal. It airs on ANT1 and it broadcast in the 2006 spring. It is hosted by Costas Karistinos, who also hosts the Greek version of Fort Boyard on Star Channel. There are 22 boxes held by 22 potential contestants coming from various Greek prefectures. Each episode ultimately features one contestant.
During the first round, players answer a multiple choice question and the day's contestant is selected randomly among those who answered correctly. The monetary prizes range from €0.01 to €200,000, but only half of the prize is given to the contestant. The other half is given to a viewer that has participated in a text message contest going on during the broadcast. Usually, three of the boxes contain items of little value (such as a brick, an umbrella, or a souvlaki) Sometimes, the Banker offers a case exchange instead of cash.
A player won the top prize after refusing the offer of €45,500. The show ended in February 2008, before returning on October 2010.
